    Volume of the milk crate is 40000cm (400 metres)
    Volume of the space is 3200000cm (32 000 metres)

    What next?

    Please ... don't do that again: You can't measure a volume by a unit of length.

    1. Volume of the milk crate: V_{mc} = 50 cm \cdot 40 cm \cdot 20 cm = 40,000 cm^3

    2. Volume of the space on the vehicle: V_{sv} = 2 m \cdot 1.6 m \cdot 1 m = 3.2 m^3

    3. You have to convert the units to use the values in the following calculations. Since 1 m^3 = 1,000,000 cm^3 you'll get V_{sv} = 3,200,000 cm^3

    4. And now you can check by division how many crates fit into the space on the vehicle. (See p0oint's calculation)
